Cliftonville boss Tommy Breslin believes the pressure will be on Linfield to claim maximum points at Windsor Park on Tuesday afternoon.
The champions trail the Reds by a hefty 13 points as we enter the New Year.
Cliftonville have 16 fixtures standing between themselves and title glory - with a first Irish Premiership since 1998 firmly within reach.
Breslin admits his side are there to be shot at following their table-topping heroics this season.
And he fully expects Linfield to throw the proverbial kitchen sink at his side today.
“Linfield will look at the game as a must-win, but we will go to Windsor looking for the three points too,” he said.
“It is not the be all and end all, but we are going there with a positive attitude.
“If you go for the draw or to sit back then that’s when you lose games.
“We need to be on top form and a lot sharper than we were on Saturday against Dungannon.
“New Year’s Day is a massive game, but it is still only three points.
“We will train on Monday and see who has got knocks. We will out a good team and see what happens.”
